On this episode, Priya talks to a panel of three queer South Asian artists about their work and how the arts have been affected by the pandemic — as well as one very unique fund that is working to support South Asian artists and arts workers in the U.S.:
Bhumi Patel an artist, activist and dancer
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto a visual artist, performer and curator
and Ashok Sinha, a board member of the India Center Foundation, which started the South Asian Arts Resiliency Fund.
Bhumi and Zulfikar talk about their art, including how their experiences have informed their work and how this crisis has affected them. Ashok adds perspective on ICF, and why this fund was created. Later, all three weigh in on how we can support the queer artists, and the arts, during and after these difficult times.
